Donna Thompson, MSN, CRNP, FNP-BC, CCCN-AP, a nurse practitioner at Penn Medicine Urogyneclogy and past president of the WOCNCB, will present (C406) A Day in the Life of a Continence Nurse on Monday, May 22, 2017, 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. This session is worth 1 contact hour.
Hear the best strategies for managing urinary incontinence from an expert!
Why should attendees go to your session?
Over the years, many tri-certified members of the Society have talked to me about their uncertainty surrounding keeping their full scope certification when it comes to completing their re-certification through exams or PGPs. Some feel that current continence practice exceeds their skills and knowledge. This session should convince them otherwise. Starting in 2014 with the AUA/SUFU guideline, and in following years by other national and international urology and urogynecology medical societies, non surgical management of incontinence that starts with lifestyle changes and behavioral therapies have been considered first line treatment. These treatments are the primary components in the CWOCN's tool box. This session will use a case study approach to highlight first line treatments - something that the WOC nurse does best!
What are the key takeaways?
First line therapy for incontinence will be highlighted using a case study approach. In each real life case, there will be a review of current evidence to support each therapy.
What can WOC nurses use from your session to incorporate into their daily practice?
Application of first line treatments for incontinence. Something that can be done with all our patients. From simple instructions on how to do a good kegal exercise, to fluid management, recognizing triggers for accidents and many other simple yet very effective strategies.

Prevent nursing injuries while decreasing pressure injury prevalence with the TurnAssist Patient Turning System. Rugged construction, a more comfortable microclimate, and washability make the TurnAssist the ideal tool for your facility's patient turning protocol.
The offset wedges are sized to fit a patient's body better, supporting the torso while offloading the sacrum while the double-sewn handles make re-positioning easy. The triple-layer glide sheet allows air flow for use with low air-loss mattresses, and supports easy patient turns. Optional incontinence pads keep the patient dry. TurnAssist can be laundered or wiped down for continued use.
